We just discovered an issue in both 1.0.0.5 and 1.0.1.10 today which causes update of the store token required for accessing store repositories to fail. A fix for that has been pushed a few minutes ago: The update to version 1.0.1.12 you might be seeing on your device soon contains exactly this one fix to keep store access working.

My Jolla arrived this morning, and I've been playing with it all day. It is by far the most exciting device and operating system I've used in a long, long time. When it arrived, the first update to the operating system was already waiting for me to be installed - and only a few hours later, another update is hitting the device. They have promised another large bugfix and stability update before the end of the year, with updates with new features arriving early next year.

These men and women know what they're doing. They're not overselling, and they keep their promises. A very promising start.

Wow...the very same attitude that Europeans claim Americans suffer from, coming from a European. Stay classy, dude.

Small-mindedness is small-mindedness, no matter which side of the pond you're on.

Do you have examples of what you mean?
The attitude here is: the US has such a stupid minefield of patents that it is not worth it to enter it until you have a big warchest with which to pay for those millions of lawyers you are going to need.
The attitude Americans suffer from: we are number one

I didn't see it as a patent issue (though surely it will be), but as a more personal "I hate fucking Americans" type comment. Maybe I was wrong, I'm just so used to the anti-America attitude on this site (deserved or not).

Yes, we have a corrupt government, yes there are a lot of idiots running things here...but the same can be said about most European countries. The difference is, the Americans on this site don't go around bashing European countries over a damn phone. Like I said, small-mindedness.

Didn't you get the memo? Double standards equal enlightenment now.

P.S.
I sure hope you're prepared to be modded down to oblivion and/or dogpiled by the "Rah-rah, EU #1!" folks.

I really don't care about mod points, as I've said in the past. My reputation here speaks for itself, and I like to think I'm a liked or at least respected person. When I say something controversial or unpopular, I expect a backlash and it's fine.

I've never taken the anti-American attitude here personally, and even with this discussion I didn't. This is just the first time I've been moved to bring it up. I'm not anti-European, and this discussion won't change that. An entire continent is not measured by the words of a few of its members.

And as Forrest Gump would say, "that's all I've got to say about that".
